somewhat desperate question about trucking jobs...?

my mom works for J.B. Hunt on a regional account out of plainfield indiana and she only has a year of experience and as all truckers know .. jb hunt doesnt treat their drivers very good so she is looking for a new job.. but since she has us kids (im 18 and my brother and sister are 12 and 11) and she isnt home almost at all.. she is looking for a local driving job with a new company where she works during the day (or has a consistant schedule) and is home every day... does anybody know of any companies around the plainfield/indianapolis area that are currently hiring and will take 1 year veterans??? she is very very unhappy with her job and stresses over it all the time... i would really like to see her with a new and better job.. thanks!

if you live in or near plainfield she can check out and apply for conway it is in plain field. she would have to have a doubles and triples endorsement on her license to work there and hazmat she could be home every day or at least every other day depending on the work schedule they have really good benefits
